Eddie Murphy – Party All The Time (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 15th September 2011

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

“Party All the Time” was a single originally recorded by comic actor Eddie Murphy in 1985, written and produced by Rick James and Kevin Johnston at James home studio in Buffalo, New York. The single reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, kept off the top by Lionel Richie’s “Say You, Say Me”. While it is commonly thought to be Murphy’s only music hit, he did manage to have one more top forty song with 1989’s “Put Your Mouth on Me”. Rick James also provided some vocals for the song. Later, “Weird Al” Yankovic covered part of the song in his polka medley Polka Party!.

In March/April 2009, VH1 listed “Party all The Time” as #80 on its 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the 80s countdown, even though Eddie had another hit with “Put Your Mouth on Me”.

Billboard ranked the song at #7 on it’s 1986 year end chart.
